Introduction: CREW 

When we say "crew" we mean all those who are, by means of their labor, in one way or another, facilitating or supporting students and tutors while studying and living together at DAI. We feel that it is important to mention here that all our facilitators have a strong connection with art and, we are proud to say, quite a few are DAI alumni.

Go to Faculty to find all those who have been invited by DAI to tutor, teach, respond, review, lead, curate or coach students or student collectives.
